LNT Camporees
Leave No Trace Camporee I met with our council's Outdoor Ethics Advocate and a couple other Leave No Trace master educators last night to discuss ways in which we might get LNT more integrated into the local Scouting program.

One idea that came up was to have Leave No Trace themed camporees. Rather than trying to convince districts to do this and come up with their own camporee program, it would be easier to get buy-in if a prepared program could be provided, thus cutting down their planning efforts.

So, this morning I went hunting for info. As it turns out, there have been a few such camporees held over the past decade. Here are a few webpages that have such LNT Camporee info, some vague and some with good ideas:

Have you been to an LNT Camporee? How was it? If you can send me a document of the activities, contests, or program, that would be great!

I am the OEA for North Florida Council and a LNT master educator.  I have been the chair for 3 District LNT themed campores.  My first was held in NCAC in 1997 and was the 1st LNT themed camporee in the US.  The 2nd was with Mason Dixon council in 2009.  My 3rd is to be heald this fall in Marion District.  If I could get a mailing address i would be glad to send a copy of the leaders guide, descriptions of the station, and description of the camporee.
